Eclair

Method

For the chocolate cream

  • In a pot, add the 400 g of milk, sugar and cocoa powder. Place pot over medium heat.
  • In a small bowl, combine the remaining 100 g of milk and the corn starch.
  • Add the vanilla extract and as soon as the mixture comes to a boil, add the corn starch mixture and whisk until the cream thickens.
  • Remove pot from heat and add the butter.
  • Whisk until incorporated and transfer chocolate cream to a bowl.
  • Cover with plastic wrap, making sure it directly touches the surface of the cream so a film won’t form.
  • Refrigerate so it can thicken.

For the dough

  • Preheat oven to 190* C (374* F) Fan.
  • In a pot, add the water, butter, sugar and salt. Place pot over heat.
  • As soon as the mixture comes to a boil and the butter melts, add the flour. Mix with a wooden spoon over low heat, until the mixture comes together and forms a thick dough.
  • Transfer dough to a mixer and beat for 1-2 minutes to cool it down.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, waiting for each addition to be completely incorporated before adding the next.
  • Beat until the dough comes together and transfer to a pastry bag.
  • Line two baking pans with parchment paper and pipe out the éclair.
  • Brush with egg wash and bake for 30 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from heat and allow to cool completely.

To assemble

  • Use a knife to make 2 small holes on the bottom side of each éclair and fill with chocolate cream.
  • Serve with melted chocolate and almond slivers.
